A post-lockdown surge in sacrilege
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Earlier this year, Church Militant reported on a wave of anti-Christian vandalism sweeping across Italy, "in a binge of violence unparalleled in recent memory." Months later, a post-lockdown upsurge in these episodes widely underreported by the media quickly spread across the country.
Despite the alarming increase in such offenses, the majority of cases were reported solely in the local press, as denounced by Catholic website Fatti Sentire: "Christianophobia isn't only about Christian persecution in the Middle East; it's more than enough to read our local headlines, usually written in small print in order to hide from the regime media."
The website also predicted how the numbers of anti-Christian attacks would soar this year: "In 2020 we'll witness a boost in belligerent laicism, as during lockdowns the police actually invaded the few churches which remained open and stopped the celebrations through intimidation of the clergy."
The imagery of such a tyrannical violation certainly contributed to foster the conditions for this outburst of anti-Christian sentiment.
The attacks ensued almost immediately after the official beginning in May of the gradual easing of Italy's lockdown. During the Marian month, a statue of Our Lady was decapitated in the town of Rosta, and the few local news outlets that took notice of it only reported the fact because the mayor himself denounced it on Facebook.

It’s the Southern Baptists and the Amish at it again in Italy.
Maybe if their dogma wasn’t so strong?
